We’re finally set with our ankle booties for the remainder of fall, but we’re still missing something extremely important on our shoe rack: knee-high boots! As the winds pick up even more and the temps drop down lower and lower, we’re going to need a little more leg coverage than ankle booties can offer!

Knee-high boots can obviously offer us much more than warmth alone though. They’re always in style and will instantly level up any outfit, whether we’re slipping them on over pile-lined leggings on a freezing day or over a pair of tights (or even bare legs) when the sun starts to pop back out. Our favorite pair this year? Let Us show you!

These Xripley boots have so many reviews, and shoppers say they look good with everything. They’re describing them as “classic” and “sleek,” and the material as “so soft, flexible and warm.” They say they receive “a ton of compliments” while wearing them and that they love how stylish they feel in them even “while trudging through some snow and ice.” Apart from the visuals, shoppers also say these boots are super comfortable, even for the “NYC walking lifestyle,” which is the ultimate test!

These knee-high boots have a leather-look upper that comes in multiple styles, from smooth or pebbled black to brown. This upper features a couple of studded button accents, and over on the back we’ll find a stretchy elastic or knit gore, depending on which version of the shoe we choose. This detail is super adorable, and we love how it keeps the shoe collar from prodding at the bottom of our knee every time we need to take a step — which is often!

Over on the side of this boot is a zipper that runs from top to bottom so we won’t need to enlist an army to pull them off at the end of the day. Down at the bottom we’ll find a low stacked heel with a flat base to add extra style points without any added discomfort, and on the inside we’ll be delighted to find a soft lining and padded footbed!

We’re so excited that we can not only save $20 on these season-appropriate shoes, but that there’s a wide-calf version available in the same colors too! That’s one of the biggest issues shoppers experience when it comes to knee-high footwear, but LifeStride has us taken care of — so let’s get shopping!
